The Nuggets have a chance at landing the number pick in this year NBA draft. The chance is slim, but there is one. Currently, the Nuggets have .8% of landing the top spot. Due to their record from last year, the Nuggets will likely pick somewhere around #11. In the past years, there has always been a team that moves up the board and picks in a spot much better than expected.
The news gets even better for the Nuggets. The Nuggets will own the New York Knicks pick in this years draft as well. Due to their record, they are predicted to pick around #12. Both of these picks will give the Nuggets a 5.5% chance to pick in the top three. The chance might be nearly impossible, but thanks to a stacked draft class, the Nuggets will be coming out with two top players that will help their franchise going forward.
